Vedno, ko smo v dvorani čakali na pričetek showa naslednjega oblikovalca, sem razmišljala kako hektično mora biti zadaj. Kako manekenke dirjajo iz enega konca na drugega, se hitro preoblačijo, menjajo make-up in frizuro, kdo jim reče, da naj zdaj grejo na pisto in kako, da se od zadaj nikoli nič ne sliši. Kako se na vse to pripravijo oblikovalci in koliko vseh ljudi je sploh zadaj.

Zanimivo je videti, kako se oblikovalci pripravljajo na dogodek. Nekateri pridejo zgodaj, nekateri pozneje. Vsi imajo sistematično pripravljene komplete oblačil in dodatke, vse obešalnike in pare čevljev označijo z imeni, da vsaka od manekenk ve, kaj si mora nadeti. Pri oblačenju jim pomagajo asistenti oblikovalcev in oblikovalci sami. Zanimivo je tudi, ko obraz manekenk dobi tudi izraz njihove osebnosti in glas in nikoli nisem pomislila, da ne prihajajo vse iz Slovenije.

Pravzaprav je do slabe pol ure do pričetka predstave vse bolj umirjeno in sproščeno, ko pa pride čas, da se modeli postavijo v vrsto, se zrak nekoliko skrči, ampak vse poteka lepo po tekočem traku, vsak ve kaj in kam mora, proti koncu showov pa le postane vse bolj hektično.

Tako hektično, da se je najbolje umakniti v glavno dvorano. Ves čas me je bilo strah, da ne bi komu stopila na obleko ali pomendrala kakega dodatka, ki je čakal pri tleh ali se celo zaletela v umetnico ličenja, kar bi rezultiralo v veliki rdeči črti čez manekenkin obraz. Takrat je najbolj varno biti gledalec.

In p.s. Mimi je tista, ki reče zdaj.

While waiting among a number of photographers in front of the runway, for the show to start, in all previous fashion weeks, I always wondered how tense the atmosphere must be in the backstage right that minute. And how the models must be running from one end to another, getting dressed in new clothes, having their make-up and hair done for the next show. And pretty much, my guesses were right. It is hectic back there, but a well organised hectic.

You see, Ljubljana’s fashion week is one where in one evening, many designers present their collections at the same venue, with shows just minutes apart. So the logistics and organisation or let’s call it backstage choreography, that everything happens in the right time, is of most important.

Models quickly running from one end to another, getting dressed, make-up artists and hair stylists quickly adjusting make-up and hair for the next look, designers making final inspections and adjustments, than off they go and same thing all over again.

At first things are pretty calm, but towards the end of the shows, the backstage gets really busy. I figured that best thing to do then, is to just smoothly remove yourself from the centre of everything, as you don’t really want to be the one stepping on someone’s dress, or shoes or sunglasses or bump into the make-up artist making a big smear with her brush on the models face and find the safest place to be. And that is, at the show. [/column]
